Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peak – Pansy Bunny


I decided to go with a project other than a card to show the versatility of this sweet set. I mean, who doesn’t need a gift card holder in their stash? I thought this one would be great for a busy mom who is so devoted to her family she forgets to have fun! You don’t know someone like that do you??? Nahhhh! LOL! I make a point to have at least a bit of fun everyday!

This is soooo easy to make. EPLS (easy peasey lemon squeezey)! I used a 8.5 x 5.5” (half sheet) piece of white CS and scored at 3” and 6.5”. This leaves a 2” piece left inside which I also border punched. This basically creates an uneven tri-fold card. The smaller segment becomes the pocket inside. I simply used red line tape to hold the edges of the pocket up. With the pocket being 2” high, the top edge of the gift card will show above the pocket. You can write a message on the underside of the outer flap or above the pocket inside. I would have taken a photo but with it all being white and not having a gift card to put inside, it really didn’t show up well and it is a pretty easy concept!

Under the flowers, all coloured with different Copic markers, I cut a frame with Nestabilities Label 8. I wanted a size in between the available sizes so I used the second smallest and die cut it. Then I placed the smallest die in the center and embossed only. I used a hobby knife to cut on the largest embossed line. I cut out the flowers, in come case removing the leaves. Then I glued them back on at angles which suited their placement along the frame and a  few tiny pearls finished it.

I stamped the sentiment in the center of the upper portion (I used pencil lines for placement) before adhering the frame with foam dots. In case you are interested, I got all of the colour combos from real photos of flowers in Google images.

Hi Rebecca, what a beautiful card! I didn't relize that it held a gift card - what a great idea. That pansy punch could not be more perfect! Great job! Keep up the great work!!
